St. Woolos Gateway Building, Newport Cathedral Newport, Wales 2017–2017

The St. Woolos Gateway Building creates a bridge between the Cathedral “island” and the surrounding neighbourhood. The facilities include a community café, creche, shop, training and co-work space. These are planned in two small buildings either side of Stow Hill, the road that skirts around the south side of the Cathedral “island”. The plan envisages that Stow Hill will be pedestrianised.
